The Dream of You: Let Go of Broken Identities and Live the Life You Were Made For
Date: January 2018
Duration: 6 hours 29 minutes
Let's be honest: the life you're leading isn't the one you've always dreamt of. And maybe the person you've become isn't who you imagined you'd be. Sure, you can work longer, love harder, and eat better. You can scrub the surface of your life until it gleams. But that won't address the fact that you've somehow lost sight of who you really are. Working from the core message of Ephesians 1:11, Jo Saxton implores women to reject mistaken identities. Relying on personal stories from her own life, she identifies key scenarios where identities develop that are not true to God's vision, demonstrating the importance of knowing one's name, embracing the gifts you've been given, confronting body issues, managing seasons of depression and grief, and letting go of perfectionism. Through Biblical examination of texts where identities are in question or being developed, she invites listeners to accept being seen and known by a loving God-and to allow their broken stories to become redemptive ones.
